No Revolution for America. Only shoes.


On the very same day:

An anti-government potpourri of Left and Right disaffection revolted in France, bellowing against elitist myopia,



the United States experienced a revolt of its own:  a revolt against old shoes.

Shallow American consumerism, expressed most intensely by its burgeoning underclass, caused a similar stir because people in this country appear unable to rouse any emotion unless $180 of rubber are lasciviously adorned over their feet.

A nation’s vibrancy is measured not by its diversity or self-debasement;  it is measured by the self-respect and will for dignity of its most downtrodden.

The downtrodden in America have absolutely no self-respect for the corporate class bids it away in daily business transactions.

No Revolution for America.
